Can I plot small 1 minute length lines above and below current price that represent 1%, 2%, 3% and so on.

I doubt this indicator exists so i'd like to ask anyone if they know if what i'm wanting is even possible. I'd like to make a color coded series of lines that maintain a 1%, 2%, 3% offset from the current price choice (last, mark, ask) with the option to display the price values beside them and the option to display the difference between it and the price. I'd like the lines to just be 1 period length and offset to the right by one (or more) so it doesn't block the view of price action. If some level 2 data can be added here in visual form, boy that would be cool too.

Also, if anyone knows, would it be possible to plot a value at the top right hand corner of a chart that is the % of the currently visible portion of the price graph compared to the price. IE, if the current chart is zoomed into between exactly $90.00 and $100.00, then 10% would be in the corner.

Thanks for any help.

We cannot determine the visible portion of the chart as you requested, but the following may help with the rest of your request.

Ruby:
input pricetype = PriceType.LAST;
input lineweight = 2;
input linemover = 2;

def c = close(pricetype = pricetype);

plot c1 = (if IsNaN(c[linemover - 1]) and !IsNaN(c[linemover]) then c[linemover] + c[linemover] * .01 else Double.NaN);
plot c2 = (if IsNaN(c[linemover - 1]) and !IsNaN(c[linemover]) then c[linemover] + c[linemover] * .02 else Double.NaN);
plot c3 = (if IsNaN(c[linemover - 1]) and !IsNaN(c[linemover]) then c[linemover] + c[linemover] * .03 else Double.NaN);

c1.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
c2.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
c3.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
DefineGlobalColor("C", Color.YELLOW);
c1.SetDefaultColor(GlobalColor("C"));
c2.SetDefaultColor(GlobalColor("C"));
c3.SetDefaultColor(GlobalColor("C"));
c1.SetLineWeight(lineweight);
c2.SetLineWeight(lineweight);
c3.SetLineWeight(lineweight);

input showbubbles = yes;
input bubblemover = 2;
def bm = bubblemover;
def bm1 = bm - 1;
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and IsNaN(c1[bm]) and !IsNaN(c1[bm1]), c1[bm1], "1%", c1.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and IsNaN(c2[bm]) and !IsNaN(c2[bm1]), c2[bm1], "2%", c1.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and IsNaN(c3[bm]) and !IsNaN(c3[bm1]), c3[bm1], "3%", c1.TakeValueColor());
